Let’s build today!!! I gave the girls the opportunity to really work as a team, and by listening to every step, build their own tornado!! We had 4 bottles so there were 4 different tornadoes ready to be made. The girls started to cut the remaining paper from the 2 liter bottles to make confetti. It really helped the tornadoes looked more colorful. Nakaylah of course was my helper with helping all of the groups with proper materials. She helped with filling the container with water and even thought of a better way to transport the water into the bottles without spilling. The first group was Semayyah, Danaisha, Dekira, and Ajah. They wanted to be the first group to finish so the other groups can follow, lead by example if you will. Danaisha, another helper of mine today, wanted to help the other groups with their tornadoes and helped everyone secure their bottles.
